Mrs. Tanya Snyder, hundreds of WOW Members, and thousands of Washington Redskins fans participated in the inaugural Back to Football 5K race at FedExField on September 7, 2013 to help kick off the 2013 NFL season. Check out our TOP FIVE moments from the day:
1. Seeing FedExField at dawn.
Yes, it was tough getting up at 5:00 AM to make pre-race registration, but we have to admit that warming up as the sun came up over FedExField surrounded by more than 1,000 Redskins fans was pretty cool.
2. Exclusive 5K Tees: Run This Town. Love This Team.
WOW Members were out in full force and those who signed up to participate on the WOW team received this exclusive race day tee! We had a few extra, so we gave them out to new signups too.
After crossing the finish line, receiving an official “Redskins 5K” running shirt and finisher medal, and being greeted by the Redskins cheerealders and WOW wives, participants also enjoyed an exclusive post-race party in the Bud Light Pavilion featuring live entertainment.
3. The Play 60 Fun Run.
Kids were invited to participate in a special 1/2 mile fun run and received chocolate milk at the finish line. What's even cooler? Getting to run out of same inflatable helmet used on the field during pregame introductions on gameday...
4. Winning the award for the largest team!
Here are some of the WOW Wives, a group consisting of the wives, girlfriends, and mothers of Redskins players, coaches, and front office staff, who accepted the award.
5. ALL OF THE SUPPORT! And these ladies. Because we think running 3 miles in tutus is impressive.
WOW wants to say a BIG thank you to everyone who ran on the WOW team and supported the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation. The Redskins Back to Football Run benefits the Redskins Charitable Foundation, whose mission is to make a positive impact on youth development in the greater Washington, D.C. area, focusing on health and wellness, education and community outreach.
